A rugged compact made from parts found in a Sony RX1, Fuji X100 and Fuji XE1 would tick all my boxes. Full frame, black bodied, fixed pancake f2.8 lens 28mm lens (after all, f2 is only one stop brighter, but so much bigger and heavier for the light gained unless it’s only the out of focus bits of images that turn you on?), leaf shutter for fast flash synch speed, 100% accurate hi res EVF, aperture, shutter and exposure compensation as per X100, and ideally a mechanical manual focus option as well as a quick auto system. Finally it should be sufficiently weatherised and dust resistant so it could be slung over my shoulder or stuffed in a pocket to be my constant companion. I reckon I would happily part with £1200-£1500 for such a camera, safe in the knowledge that there are already many excellent SLR's out there for folk that want to change focal lengths?
